After providing a short summary of their theory of developmental education (self-regulation, demandingness, and responsiveness), the authors recommend several ways to implement the theory within general education courses. Such an integrated approach to developmental education, rather than the traditional separate track system, will require institutional commitment as well as professional development in new learning pedagogies for those who instruct the new courses.
